To Have & to Hold
TO HAVE AND TO HOLD Here it is my first album featuring 29 original tunes. This tunes are dance floor proven coast to coast to keep Contra Dancers delighted. 12 great musicians in different combinations on 12 cuts playing a wide variety of styles and instruments. A quote from Rich Sobel. I thought my wife was complaining when she came home from work and said 'I had Paul's tunes stuck in my head all day today at work.' And then she said, ' But it was ok because they're really good tunes.'. That was the day after I had been listening to one of the preproduction versions of the CD and I couldn't have said it any better myself. These ARE really good tunes. So the time is way overdue that Paul's music was unleashed upon the rest of an unsuspecting world. I hope you all become as infected and addicted to these tunes as I have, with their range of emotions and styles from the frenetic Klezmer energy of 'New Potatoes and Vasalisa's Breakdown' to the jazzy 'Waiting for the Power', to the simple and elegant sweetness of 'To Have and To Hold', Paul's wedding waltz to his wife, Karen.
